A 6 mile ‘long’ training run for the Marathon this morning. It started off cold, blustery & wet but came good in the end. The icing on the cake was when ‘Gonna Fly Now’ from Rocky started playing and I was practically running up the steps of Philidephia’s Museum of my head.

I knew there was a reason I had that track on my phone. Then again, I also have the theme tune to He-Man on it. Make of that what you will.

I should also add that my massage on Wednesday night has worked miracles and my times have dropped by at least a minute per mile?! I must've been really struggling prior but I just hadn't noticed by how much.

I'm away next weekend but I'll be packing my trainers and aiming for an 8 miler, my longest run to date. In fact, I have secret plans to push myself to 9+ miles but shhhhh, don't tell my brain what I'm planning :D

Until next time, keep on running!
